– Broomstick Lace Crochet.  details August 9th, 2014, Saturday 2-4pm 
Broomstick lace crochet is an example of a technique that makes use of a tool designed for a common everyday household task but reinterprets its use to create lovely fabric. That resulting fabric features larger than usual loops of yarn gathered into groups and embellished with several single (or other) crochet stitches. One particular distinction of this among most other crochet techniques, broomstick lace crochet allows one to easily create “drape” in the fabric, also showcasing and leaving visible long strands of the yarn. It is, therefore, an excellent stitch choice for supple blankets and flowing garments. Join us as we learn the basics of this lovely technique.
– Learn to Knit a Triangular Lace Shawl.  details August 16th, 2014, Saturday 2-5pm
Using the elegant technique of yarn-over increases paired with decreases, learn to knit lace in a triangular shape.  The class begins with how to make a garter stitch tab as the cast-on at the nape of the neck and covers the skills (including how to incorporate beads) needed to work down to the shaping of the bound-off edge. Practice chart reading by working on a stitch pattern which could be incorporated into the shaping of your triangular shawl.
